A tasty bowl of Matcha, although it’s a bit underwhelming. Not as impressive as I was hoping it would be. I mean, I guess with it being a Kiwi Matcha, I had my hopes pretty high. But the flavor here tastes less like kiwi fruit and more like a candied kiwi. Kind of like the dried, sugar coated kiwi slices you’ll find in the dried fruit section of the grocery store.
Don’t mistake that as me saying I dislike it … I’m enjoying it, but, I guess I was just hoping for a more true-to-the-fruit taste because there are so few Kiwi teas out there … and I was hopeful about this one.
Nice balance between flavor and Matcha – the matcha is sweet, creamy and smooth, and the fruit flavor is sweet and fruity. My specs for this tea were the classic grade of Matcha and the Distinctive level of flavoring.
